Cayuga Wine Trail West "Taste & Learn" Tour

Sit back, let us do the driving, and join us for a unique experience on the Cayuga Wine Trail.  At one of our highly-acclaimed wineries, a winemaker will take you on a private, behind-the-scenes tour. Learn about the winery, its history, stroll through its vineyards, take a close look at its approach to winemaking.


A private tasting follows, where you will experience their collection of wines.  One of the wines will be featured  with a  carefully selected food to bring out both the food and the wine's unique qualities. Next, we visit two additional, high-quality wineries that we have specifically chosen to round out your tasting experience. At each winery you will savor the flavors and varieties of the wines themselves, and sample carefully prepared food-wine combinations.

We end this tour with a trip to the beautiful Taughannock Falls, the tallest waterfall in the eastern US.  This overall touring experience will stimulate both your palate and your mind.
